Voyage autour du monde : entrepris par ordre du roi ... exécuté sur les corvettes de S. M. l'Uranie et la Physicienne, pendant les années 1817, 1818, 1819 et 1820 ...

Published 1824

All atlases are shelved in folio section

Pt. 4 of Historique never printed or incorporated in other parts. Several sources claim Botanical portion not published until 1830 but this is inconclusive

Library's set corresponds to B.M. set. We are probably lacking Observations magnétiques portion, Météorologie, and Recherches sur les langues? Some may have not been published

Uranie with a crew of 125 explored Australia, Hawaiian Islands, Tonga, and Tierra del Fuego ... when the Uranie was shipwrecked it was replaced by Physicienne which visited Rio de Janiero. Cf. Hill, Jonathan A., The Hill collection of Pacific voyages, p. 7
